This is what BMX racing needs

5 11 2013

BMX racing needs a breath of fresh air and I think events like the upcoming Helltrack event being held at The Lumberyard bike park might be just the way to do that.

What is the Helltrack event you ask?

Well, according to the Helltrack website, it’s:

…a multi-lap obstacle race with 7 riders going head to head that combines indoor and outdoor features, a cereal bowl, pallets, bikes, beer, jumps, UCI Bro Barriers, Carnage, good times, and …race classes for everyone and for all types of bikes.

Sounds pretty freaking awesome to me!

A welcome departure from the standard, far-to-serious-for-its-own-good atmosphere that most big races have.

And unlike a UCI event, you probably wouldn’t be looked down if you raced in jeans (See:  Cru Jones: the UCI doesn’t like your type).

Now, we just need to get an event at all the big indoor bike parks (like Ray’s MTB, Joyride 150, etc.) so more people can take part in the tomfoolery.

Can’t wait to see the video highlights of this event.
